• What is the A+ Scholarship Program?
     
    Graduates of Republic High School can qualify for a state-paid financial incentive to attend any public community college or career/technical school in Missouri through the A+ Scholarship Program. 
     
    Republic R-III School District received designation as an A+ School from the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education in the Spring of 1998.  With the A+ Scholarship Program, students have more opportunities to explore various career options and start preparing for future workplace experiences.
     
    To date, 2320 students have graduated as A+ Scholarship recipients utilizing funding for post-secondary career study.  In the 2017-2018 school year, 60% of the graduating senior class graduated with A+ Scholarship recognition.
     
    Whether students are planning to go directly into the workplace upon graduation or continuing their education at college or a vocational/technical school, all students can benefit from the A+ Scholarship Program.
